This claim, which has frightened millions of women, is a fabrication by a single anti-bra militant who unfortunately knows how to create internet hoaxes.
The world is full of crackpots. Don't worry.

In brief: No
There is no evidence to suggest that wearing a bra at anytime could lead to cancer.
The reason for the development of cancer is complex and is related to changes in the cell that result in abnormal cells not dying as they should and instead piling up.
